Established in 1965, the International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) is the first fully accredited international school in Malaysia.
Over the years, ISKL has built its outstanding international reputation by balancing sound tradition for academic excellence with innovative approaches to teaching, learning and expanding technology.
ISKL is a private, not for profit, parent-governed school accredited in the United States through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and internationally through the Council of International Schools (CIS). ISKL has no shareholders. We pay no dividends. Our only business is the education of your children.
Among the programs offered are Prep Reception (3 years old) to High School diploma, the International Baccalaureate diploma and Advanced Placement courses.
ISKL provides high quality education for expatriate children residing with their families in Kuala Lumpur and academically qualified Malaysian students. More than 1500 students attend ISKL from more than 60 countries. In view of our diverse student population, our programs have been designed to nurture our students’ appreciation of other cultures.
At ISKL, learning does not stop with academics but encompasses social, emotional and moral development. We offer a well-rounded educational program for our students to excel and lead balanced quality lives outside of the classroom. ISKL students have many opportunities to engage in challenging academic programs as well as extensive interscholastic athletics and activities.
ISKL’s faculty comprises highly qualified and experienced professionals, two thirds of whom hold post-graduate degrees. An experienced staff assists the faculty and administration and contributes to the successful daily operation of the school.
Key to the school’s success is the active involvement of all members of the school community. The Board of Directors is composed of parents elected by the parent community. Parents also volunteer through the Parent Teacher Association and Booster Club, supporting the wide variety of after-school activities and other special programs throughout the year.
ISKL is a place where the interaction of students, faculty and families creates an energetic and invigorating learning environment. ISKL is truly the first step to a lifetime of learning. Welcome to ISKL!
